in the northern capital friday, where tens of thousands turned out in support of north korean leader kim jong-un's call to arms. chanting, death to the u.s. imperialists. kim said earlier that the time had come to, quote, settle accounts with the u.s. this was in response to a u.s. show of force, b-2 bombers in exercises over south korea. kim has also ordered his missiles on standby to strike the u.s., south korea, guam, even hawaii. experts doubt he has the ability to hit u.s. targets, and think it would be pretty suicidal to try. they believe a full-scale conflict is unlikely, but do worry about a more localized provocation, perhaps around disputed waters in the yellow sea. there have been several clashes there in recent years and when i visited the area friday, i found the south most vulnerable islands just ten miles from the north on a high state of alert. the big worry is that a local skirmish or miscalculation could quickly escalate. >> ian, thank you. for more on what this means for u.s. allies here's our nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. andrea? >> thomas, ex

of kim jong un, the north korean leader, peering through field glasses and threatening to annihilate a small south korean island this is that island. it's about ten miles from the north korean mainland. in fact, kim was standing just over there on that small island when he made those threats. this place is home to 5,000 civilians. and a lot of soldiers. now, you would have thought that they would have got used to threats from the north. but even here, they've been alarmed by the frequency and the intensity of the threats that have come from pyongyang. now, the latest of course, was kim saying he was readying north korean missiles to attack u.s. bases. and today there was a mass rally in the center of pyongyang, screaming death to imperialists. and of course, supporting kim jong un. analysts believe an attack on u.s. bases is not that likely. that north korea simply doesn't have the capability. more likely is some sort of limited clash here in the west sea, that's happened before. the people on this island are only too aware of that. andr andrea? >> ian williams thanks to you on the f

. this comes at the end of the week in which kim jong-un ended the 60-year peace deal with south korea and threatened the united states with a preemptive nuclear attack. joining me now is william cohen and, sir, i'm so glad you're here because this is kind of frightening jargon that's coming out of kim jong-un. i mean, is there any way to gauge how serious these threats are? to make sure this isn't all just bluster? >> well, there is a lot of bluster, but i think that he would understand that any threat to the united states that he seeks to carry out would be met with a response that certainly would alter the geography in that region of the world. and i think what we have to do, three things, number one, we have to lower the rhetoric, which we have done. we have to increase the training and readiness, which we're also doing of our troops in the region along with the south korean forces. and what we also have to do is intensify the sanctions against the north korean regime, which we're doing. and the final thing is president obama said we will reach out to you with an open hand, but we

there with kim jong un. we look for rational answers why he did "x" or "y." with karzai, he is unstable. i don't want to speculate about his psychological health but the way he acts and the way he speaks he is mercurial and largely incomprehensible. it makes no sense whatsoever to accuse the united states of collaborating with the enemy unless you want america to leaf because we saw the reaction from joe manchin to angeer the americans in to leaving which will leave him alone. without any support, without any state run and he will end up at the top of the lamp post. as happened to the soviet, the leader of afghanistan in the sew yet days after the soviets left. the only possible irrationm explanation he promised the people he would take control of the prison at bagram air base. that was supposed to happen on the visit. it apparently didn't because of a last-minute dispute over the powers of the u.s. and afghans. and i think he might have been humiliated by fact he thought he could deliver and it turned out he can't get back the sovereignty he promised his people. so that may be an explanation.
, the rising rhetoric and actions of kim jong-un. >> shepard: a price? >> i asked them about that. they didn't know a number off hand but that's two flights had to come from -- they flew a continuous round tripp mission from air force base in missouri. 6500 miles round trip. we have in figures how much it costs to run the b-2, and the operating costs for one hour per plain is $88,000. the mission lasted at least 30 hours. two planes so that's at least $5.28 million. i asked whether they thought that was an appropriate use of money, given the current budget crisis that the pentagon is facing. we heard from general demps see and secretary hagel how they had essentially spent 80% of the operating budget, and they are facing over $40 billion in cuts because of the sequestration, so they're trying to figure things out. but general dempsey was clear that with a situation like north korea, they budgeted for b-2 flights, and they feel at this time it's very important to still use them in a deterrent capacity. >> shepard: five million bucks. a lot of frequent flier miles out of the teal. >> christian
there in philadelphia. get back now to our top story. north korea is ramping up rhetoric. kim jong-un is ordering rockets to be put on standby quote, to settle accounts with the united states of america. christian white, state department senior visor and sir good morning to you from los angeles. i want to touch on first of all, the u.s. troop involvement in south korea. we have some 30,000 troops there. when stories like these happen, what changes for them or what sort of posture would change for them when this traps? >> well, bill, i haven't heard specifically that they have been put on alert or have elevated status if you will. when you have a crisis, our troops move, liberties are canceled. closer to their weapons. aircraft are loaded and ready for flight. incidentally though, this happens, this recent kefuffle with north korea goes on during the full eagle exercise where the u.s. and south korea mills terries have large joint exercises. our forces would be at an elevated status as a result of that. the recent b-2 announcement from north korea and counter pronouncements from washington and u.s
korean force and over a million forces led by kim jong-un. >> this particular combination, the intense rhetoric, also unpredictable leader makes this a pretty tense moment. >> and the u.s. military intelligence is watching north korea very carefully. they have increased surveillance. so far they say they have not seen signs of any unusual north korean troop movements. wolf? >> they hope it is just verbal bluster. >> that's the problem. is it bluster or could it be real. it is steps the north has taken under this relatively new leader are really very different and very threatening. >> much more coming up. >>> they are called green on blue attacks. a gunman in the uniform of afghan security forces killed american troops. the shooting came as defense secretary chuck hagel wrapped up his first visit to afghanistan as secretary of defense and follows another outrageous verbal assault by karzai. barbara starr joins us with the latest. it was a slap in the face to the defense secretary, the way he was treated by karzai on the first visit abroad as the defense secretary. >> well, indeed, wolf.
jong un a great friend, his best friend, a nice guy? doesn't that undercut pressure from the west? >> you know what, dennis rodman was a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he was a great basketball player. that's where we'll leave it. >> as a diplomat, you have been a senator for decades. you have been your own boss. what's it like to coordinate and as some have suggested in the past regarding secretary clinton, take instructions on foreign policy from people in the white house who, frankly, don't have as much experience as you. this was a problem with your predecessor. >> i think -- there's lots of experience in the white house. please don't diminish that, number one. number two, i'm delight to work for this president, with the president and his advisors. it's a great team. the president has a terrific vision. that's what i came over here to try to reinforce is to really cement a community of action around common values, common economic interests, common security interests, and in europe, we did that, and in rome we made it clear how we would join together with respect t
korea. take a look at this. you see people nearly weeping we motion and troops run toward kim jong-un apparently in a near frenzy to honor him. they go waist deep into the water. they run right in. it happened during his recent visit to the border with south korea. north korea, meanwhile, is ramping up the threats. it's testing a dangerous new missile that has a potential range of 3,000 miles and it's even warning of a preemptive nuclear strike. >>> and from overseas to outer space, if you've ever wanted to see a comet without a telescope or binoculars, you might get your chance next week. it could be visible with the naked eye in the northern hemisphere on tuesday just after sunset. it's been visible with a telescope for a while now in the southern hemisphere. scientists say naked-eye comets happen once every five to ten years. i think it makes a space geek out of all of us. >> we're all space geeks when you think about the asteroids, the meteors and the comet. >> that's right. if the comet isn't enough for you, we do have another asteroid headed our way. >> yes, we do. it won't hit
when they look at north korea. they were hoping that the new leader, kim jong-un, who took over after his father died, would be more willing to work with the united states. but that is not the case. in fact, they have looked at the situation in north korea, and say that it really appears as though they are moving in the opposite direction, more bellicose, more isolated, so they are watching the country very closely. president obama, of course, has mapped out an ambitious second term agenda which includes immigration reform. a new gun control legislation. but a lot of people say that the situation in north korea, and also iran, could wind up dominating a lot of his second term. alex? >> okay. kristen, thank you very much for that from the white house. >> thank you. >> about ten minutes or so from now we're going to talk with congresswoman loretta sanchez. she's here in studio. she's of course a member of the homeland security committee and we're going to ask her directly how serious is north korea in terms of being a threat here to the u.s. homeland? >>> meantime, in less than an hour
fanatic response to kim jong-un as he visited a military camp near the south korean border. troops raising their arms in apparent joy. as he left, soldiers and people from a nearby village chasing, look at them go, through the water, towards his boat, swarming the beach, wading into the freeding cold water, there he is waving good-bye, sending him off. but the reason for his visit to this area, it is a frightening one. this was all part of the young leader's swift and defiant response to u.n. sanctions against north korea. cnn international's veteran reporter, anchor, everything else, jim clancy, in the studio here. we know that the sanctions were unanimously approved, so explain to me what kim jong-un was doing in the hours afterwards. >> well, you know, i looked at that video and i thought to myself -- >> what was that? >> they really would be cheering if he was actually leaving the country, because it is a devastated wreck. he is on the ropes. he is more isolated than ever. this is all staged. we know that. >> propaganda. >> it is a propaganda film put together with a great leader there

. >> when kim jong-un he was an unknown quantity. but with more aggressive weapons development from the north koreaian yeah over the last couple of years, the nuclear test, and certainly an escalation in the rhetoric, if not outright threats to attack the united states. what is the take on him now? is he attempting to bargain his way to the bargaining table to get aid and money? or is he a more serious threat than first imagined or a more serious threat than his father? >> as you note, there's a lot of unknowns here. but we have to take seriously every provocative word and action that this new young leader has taken so far since he has come to power. e have seen historical trajectory here on where north korea will go to get the attention of the united states, to try to maneuver us into some position favorable into to them whether it is more assistance or bilateral engagement. but the fact is, this is the wrong way to go. the action he's taken and the actions they have taken and the words he's used is not going to project a more responsible, accountable relationship. >> isn't it the

korea and the pacific. kim jong-un said they're ready to settle accounts. the announcement comes after they flew stealth bombers over south korean air space. deployed from a base in missouri, they practiced dropping bombs nearly 6,500 miles away. chuck hagel says the pentagon is not taking the regime's threats lightly. >> is north korea more dangerous today? i think they're very provocative actions and belligerent tone. it has ratcheted up the danger. and we have to understand that reality. >> on tuesday, kim jung-un threatened to fire on hawaii and the u.s. mainland and as recently put ground troops in artillery on standpoint. pyongyang released a video showing the u.s. capitol and white house under attack. this is like a cartoon. i mean, they can't even get their rocket 15 feet off the ground. >> but one of the important things is, the assumption is in military circles and intelligent circles is one of the reasons this is happening is actually a north korean leader is under threat internally and he's having to prove to his own people that he's a strong man. now, if that's the case, i

: well, i think it is a problem, craig. the obama administration had been hoping when kim jong-un took over that he would help to lead north korea out of isolationism. really the opposite has happened. he's become more bellicose than his father and these intercepters are going to be placed because of recent provocations from north korea and there is a sense that they've made advances in nuclear capabilities. last week, north korea threatened a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states and also they're ending their treaty with south korea. to there is a lot of concern. we should say this move to increase the number of intercepters marks a shift in the obama administration's policy, because back in 2010, they had said they weren't going to add new intercepters. this comes as president obama is just starting his second term. he's mapped out an ambitious agenda. but experts say this is going to take up a large portion of the next several years, concerns about north korea and iran, as well. >> let's talk about the vice president for a second, vice president biden is going to be le
